The big new Holiday update for Xbox One is out now for every user. This new update includes Clubs on Xbox Live and several other new features.

Microsoft revealed all of the new features of the new Xbox One update on the official support website. The notes of the new update can be seen below.

Clubs: Introducing clubs, online meeting places for people to play and socialize. Join clubs that interest you or create a new club (your house, your rules).

Looking for Group: Need more players? Open the guide and look under Parties to get started with Looking for Group. Browse or post your own “want ads” to find other gamers who want to complete the same goals as you. Play now, or propose a future date and time.

Achievements: A top request on Xbox Feedback, we’re bringing achievement rarity to Xbox Live. Now you can find out just how unique any achievement is among players of a given game.

Gamerscore leaderboard: The Gamerscore leaderboard is now a monthly competition with your friends that resets each month. Compete right up to the very end of the month, and check to see who the previous months’ winners were.

Messaging:
Now you can send messages to multiple people within the same conversation.

On-screen keyboard:
The on-screen keyboard supports predictive text, and emojis are making their debut as well.

Performance: We’ve been doing a lot of work to speed up your Xbox. From navigation and opening apps to download times and Cortana’s responsiveness, the whole experience is getting smoother and faster.

The next time you boot up the Xbox One, make sure to update it in order to see all of these changes.
